Ruby Fields has shared “Bottle’O”, the second single from upcoming debut album Been Doin’ It For A Bit, out September 24th. This follows on from “Song About A Boy” released earlier in the year.
A reminiscent melody drives this track as Fields strips it down to just her and a piano. “Pull up at the Bottle’O / The lady she wants to know / Why I’ve got my crinkled wallet instead of my licence / I say I lost my wallet / Life’s a bit of a crisis lately” recalls Fields and it’s in these moments of simplicity that she shines brightest. Turning everyday events into moments of glowing beauty.
Speaking of the track Fields said:
“I wrote ‘Bottle’o’ in August 2019 living on the old farm waiting for someone to visit, who never made it,” she recalls of the track’s inception. “Went to the shops, tried to get money out and couldn’t. I didn’t have my ID so I had to use cash and my passport to buy beers. Got home and wrote a pretty ordinary poem about it in my opinion but then I sat at a piano and just took it from there and now it might be my favourite.”
